One of the primary sources from BCCI said – “Virat knew that he would have been removed from white ball captaincy. If the team doesn’t do well at the UAE World T20, he was gone for good as far as white-ball leadership is concerned,”

Rohit has shades of MSD but in a different manner – BCCI Source
One of the former Indian players has reacted to these statements and said – “The problem with Virat is his communication. In the case of MS (Dhoni), his room would be open 24×7, and players could just walk in, play the PS4, have a meal and let their hair down and if required talk cricket. Beyond the ground, Kohli is literally incommunicado,”
He also added – “Rohit has shades of MSD but in a different manner. He takes the junior players out for meals, gives them a friendly pat on the back when they are down, and knows the mental aspects of a player’s make-up inside out,”
